Volunteer Requirements

Working with animals can be fun and rewarding, but safety for volunteers and our animals is always a top priority.  

Because the animals we take in are often of unknown background or history, and are living under stressful conditions, Hinsdale Humane Society holds a high standard for all volunteers.

  • Volunteers must be 18 years of age*
  • Volunteers are expected to help assure continuity and consistency by committing to a regular weekly schedule of at least one hour/week or 4 hours/month.
  • Volunteers are expected to follow all general guidelines and protocols.

Students under 16 who are completing service hours will be required to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
High school aged students looking for a long-term commitment are encouraged to join our Junior Board.

Community service hours and service learning opportunities may be available to high school students, age 16 or older who have a specific requirement.
